The retired Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, Stanley Ntagali who has been suspended from performing priestly duties for his involvement in an extra-marital affair with a married woman, has apologized to Ugandans and the Anglican community at large.

The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, Stephen Samuel Kaziimba Mugalu suspended Ntagali, and wrote a letter dated 13th January 2021 to Anglican bishops under the aegis of the Global Anglican Future Conference- GAFCON revealing the adultery.

On twitter Ntagali wrote; "I would like to apologise for my actions. As we all know, we live in bodies that are prone to sin but as the bible teaches forgiveness, it is in these trying times that we (Church of Uganda) must walk the talk,"

Ntagali continued, "I apologise to my family, the church of Uganda, the whole Christian fraternity and most importantly I repent to the Most hHgh. Nothing can be done to account for or take away this but the blood of Christ."

Many Ugandans were shocked by the news about Ntagali's adultery. One of them, a staunch Anglican Hellen Auma 60, said, "I can't believe that such a gentle man of God can do such a thing."

Some Anglicans in Uganda however criticized the Church of Uganda for embarrassing their former leader in the country.

Peter Kibanda,50 an Anglican lay leader at St. James Church in Kampala said, "Ntagali is a human being like any of us. If he was overwhelmed by Satan and committed adultery, then we should forgive him.''

Details have emerged that a woman who was accused of committing adultery with retired Ugandan Anglican archbishop Stanley Ntagali had sought divorce from her husband in December, 2020.

Retired Anglican bishop Stanley Ntagali was accused of eating the forbidden fruit with a married woman.

According to documents filed at a local court in the landlocked country, the woman whose identity was not revealed due to legal reasons had alleged her better half (also a priest at the Church of Uganda) was cruel, the Daily Monitor reported.

The couple had tied the knot at Rugarama Cathedral church in Kabale on December 15, 2018, shortly after the man of cloth's wife had passed on. Their marriage however, was shrouded in controversy as the duo engaged in endless wrangles over cheating allegations on both sides.

Court records did not indicate whether her husband filed a response towards her claims. Ntagali suspended from church later apologised

Ntagali had earlier been suspended by the church for having affair with the married woman. The current Archbishop of the Church of Uganda Reverend Stephen Mugalu argued none of its members was "clean" but noted church leaders who went astray must be punished.

“This adultery is a grievous betrayal on many levels. Retired Archbishop Ntagali has betrayed his Lord and Saviour, his wife and their marriage vows, as well as the faith of many Ugandans and global Christians who looked up to him to live the faith he proclaimed,” the cleric said in a letter as reported by the Nile Post.
